Library transfer almost complete

The Lease has now been signed and we are due to take over the library on Friday 8th March 2019.  World Book Day 2019 will mark the final day of Whitburn Library being operated by South Tyneside Council.

Unfortunately there will be a short period of closure between 8th March and 5th April to enable a new accessible toilet to be fitted and the movement of the current kitchen facilities to a more accessible place to allow room spaces for public or private hire.  Rest assured we will not be reducing the book stock or range of books available and all community activities such as Baby Bounce, Story Tots and Knit and Natter will resume under the operation of Friends of Whitburn Library from Saturday 6th April.

We will mark this new chapter with an open day on Saturday 6th April, save the date as we have exciting activities planned.  Check back soon for more information.  We will also be performing various activities over the Easter holidays from Monday 8th April, again more information will follow!

If you want to get involved and help with some of the redecoration or are interested in volunteering, please email us at
